J. Kb mentioned that the Silent Democrat Majority  “are just too scared to say anything.” I disagree, they are cowards. There is a difference.

Fear according to Webster is the “unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger.” Silent Democrats are not in danger, specially not immediately. They are not having their doors beaten at night, not run out of eateries, nor being constantly threatened with rape a death because the party they vote for. They are safe.

However, Cowardice according to Webster is the “lack of courage or firmness of purpose ” and that fits the Silent Democrat Majority: they know what their fellow Democrats are doing is morally and ethically wrong, but lack the spine to even post anonymously against their action. They don’t want to rock the boat, specially if they are being benefited somehow by the politics. If they remain silent, they don’t lose status, perks and a sense of peace.  They understand they are enabling the bad seeds of the party, but they rather not be involved. They are watching from their windows while Kitty Genovese is being murdered.

An Emasculated Majority.

  1. I’m not sure that’s entirely true. While Republicans are subject to frequent attacks by left terrorists, Democratic moderates aren’t safe from those fanatics either. Consider the reaction to Steve Colbert (I think it was) when he condemned the attack on Tucker Carlson’s home.

  2. I agree with this, and it’s sad, because even though I very rarely agree with Democratic positions on anything, America needs a healthy Democratic party. A moderate party. Something that represents sane Americans that may not necessarily agree with everything the Republicans do. The current incarnation of the Democratic party, however, is batshit insane. They have devolved into violent Socialists who interpret any criticism as treason.

    Not every registered Democrat is like this. I’m friends with a couple. I don’t talk politics with them. So are they indeed cowards? Probably. I also think maybe they are so fixated on their hatred of Trump that they don’t care what the growing group of lunatics in their party does.

  3. I don’t think the “Democratic Silent Majority” really exists. There are Democrats who aren’t part of the howling pack of the resistance, but they agree with their goals if not their methods. They will not condemn the pack because they want the pack to succeed.
